Private Servers Security

Lack of control and security on P-Servers


One of the downsides to Knight Online P-Servers is the lack of security and control when it comes to privacy. There are people who misuse user data and use it for their purposes.

What can happen?

When you register with a P-Server, you always provide an ID, a password and an e-mail address. Server admins or hackers who get hold of this data due to insufficient security precautions then try the data provided by the users on other Knight Online servers and try to get hold of equipment in order to then sell it for real money. In the majority of cases where a user was hacked or emptied, it was because they entered the same data on multiple servers.

It gets much worse!

It gets bad when a user uses the same login data on a private server as, for example, on a private e-mail or bank account. As a result, the people who get hold of this data can cause significant damage in the life of the affected user.

What can I do?

First of all, it is strongly recommended that you use different login data (ID and password) for each server. Apart from that, there are servers that offer extra security, such as 2-factor authentication or an additional PIN when logging in. If they are offered, be sure to use them.

How to stay safe

It is generally recommended that you use a different password wherever possible. You can easily generate secure and random passwords via sites such as Password Generator. Of course, the question arises as to how to remember all these complicated passwords. For this we recommend a password manager, which is usually also available in browsers and can be easily linked to e-mail accounts. Our recommendation is LastPass as it is very easy to use and can be used via a browser extension. It is also recommended to play servers that attach great importance to data protection. To find out, you should read reviews about a server before you play it and see how long the server has been online. (Servers that are online for a long time are mostly safe)
